Stages of Eosinophilic Leukemia

Staging is the procedure of determining where the tumour is located, whether it has spread or not, and how it grows. While assessing the cancer stage, many factors are taken into account.

Unlike most solid tumours, eosinophilic leukaemia doesn’t have a formal staging system. However, doctors use diagnostic tests, like those discussed in the Diagnosis section, to evaluate eosinophilic leukaemia to help decide what kind of treatment is best and predict your prognosis; that is the chance of recovery.

Regular blood tests are the standard ways to monitor a person’s recovery from eosinophilic leukaemia, including any symptoms related to the disease and the number of immature cells in the bone marrow. Talk with your doctor for more details on how your specific type of leukaemia will be evaluated.
